  Drawbridge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A drawbridge is a type of movable bridge typically associated with the entrance of a castle, but the term is often used to describe all different types of movable bridges, like bascule bridges and lift bridges.
The most common type of drawbridge consists of a wooden platform with one fixed side (normally with a hinge), and the other side attached to the wall from a floor higher than the drawbridge.
In the Middle Ages, drawbridges were often used to allow or deny access across a moat or ditch.

 Drawbridge mentality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Drawbridge mentality describes the attitude of those people who migrate to more exclusive or less spoiled communities and thereafter campaign to preserve the tranquil aspects of that community by opposing further inward migration by people or businesses and, possibly, any development or refurbishment, including plans put forward by those already located there.
A drawbridge was historically the hinged bridge at a castle's gates providing entry across a defensive moat for those occupying the castle.
Raising the drawbridge to a vertical position was therefore one means by which intruders could be shut out of the castle.

The vertical clearance and the hours of operation of these drawbridges are extremely important to boaters exploring the Delta.
It is almost routine for a boater to make a long cruise to some intended destination, only to find that a drawbridge of modest vertical clearance blocks their route, and that the bridge's hours of operation are past and that the bridgetender has gone home.
You signal a drawbridge to open with one long and one short toot of the boat horn; or by calling the Bridgetender on Channel 9 on the Marine Band VHF Radio.

As a "Jesus died for us" parallel, the tale falters on one key point: Jesus did not go to his death as the result of an accident.
Though the Heavenly Father did give up his son to save mankind (the way the drawbridge keeper sacrifices his child to spare the lives of strangers), the choice was not forced upon Him by circumstance.
The death of Jesus Christ was predetermined; the Son was always fated to die for mankind's sins.
